DORA and her glasses . . .

"THEODORA"
Theodora (known as Dora to her friends) found no comfort in the fact that her namesake and former President also suffered from myopia. 
Is it obnoxious to admit that I totally crack myself up sometimes??!!  This girl has been making me laugh all night - LOVE that mouth.  The topic at IF is eyeglasses and since I had no idea how to draw them I decided to make them from wire.

She is a riot! She does not look comforted by the new that Theodore Roosevelt also wore glasses. I love that you actually made he a pair from wire. She's just great!!

Yes! Forget the glasses--the prompt for the week should have been "mouth!" You'd be picked, hands down :) She is hilarious, though, and the glasses are great!

I am just working (practicing) on faces... None in my art journal yet- still on scrap paper, but getting close to my 1st attempt. I love your style!
